I oppose H.R. 406 ("To provide discretionary authority to an immigration judge to determine that an alien parent of") Before you pass this bill answer to the people this. What the hell are illegal aliens doing here in the first place? What does that say about your leadership that they are already here? What does it say about your OATH OF OFFICE?
